Terry L. Stein
CEO, President & Parent of a child with Autism
BA in Elementary Education
I am a retired teacher. I have had many classes on students productivity, organizational skills, testing, inclusion and subject areas. After my son was diagnosed with P.D.D. and then Autism, I found myself self-educated in the areas of Autism, P.D.D., A.D.H.D., Low body tone, Sensory disorders & at home therapy.
I have been advocating for Autism for four years with the support of my family. I am dedicated to helping families find their way through a difficult system and offer support, training models for families who are new to this diagnosis. I feel that the community will also benefit from sensitivity training in order for families to return to the community.

After spending 30 years in the workforce for profit, I am well equipted in company management, organizational and people skills. As well as employee relations. I have been advocating for my son for four years. It is difficult finding the correct medical help and our stumbles have given us the dedication to help other families in the same situation.
We are thankful to have such a diverse individual such as Catheryn to join our Autism 4 Parents family. She is the driving force and a true advocate for children with autism and related disabilities. Her creativity and drive has led us to developing many new programs for our families and community.

When my little brother was diagnosed, our lives changed. The countless physicians, specialists, therapists and home adjustments that my family has faced have led me to become an advocate. Not just for my brother, but other children in the same situation. Siblings have a special role in the family when their is a brother/sister with autism. My interest is helping other siblings find their place.
